THURSDAY, OCTOUKTA 13, 1955 F, (AR1C.1 COURtKR PAGE SEVEN Where Does Kefauver Fit Into Democrats' Picture? hy I»O\ WltlTKHKAf) WASHINGTON (AP) — In all the discussions about Adla! Slfevenson and Avcrell Harriman as the top challengers for (he Democratic presidential nomination — where does Tennessee's lanky Sen. Estes Kefauver fit into the picture? Three years jigo, Keftuwer was riding a wvw rt of popularity which had its beginning in the spectacular television Senate crime-bunting investigations which he LomlnrU-d across the country. Hi was the first time thai politicians realized the impact television could have on voters. And Kefauver was n. tele-1 vision hero. I On the first ballot at the nation-1 al convention, Kefauver was out in I front with 3-10 votes, Stevenson! was second with 273 and Georgia's t Sen. Richard Rus.sell was third | with 208. Led on Second Ballot Kefauver still was 'he leaner on [he second ballot wiih 362 ! , a vousj Arob States Ask More Time To Study Project CAIRO, Esypt (jp- — Arab stales have asked for mu/e time to study the American - sponsored Jordan Valley water development project, Eric Johnston, President Ei.sen-; hower's special envoy, announced : yesterday.

Ou the ihirtl imd final hiilloi Kefauver's support bewail to crumble. Stevenson zoomed to 617'/i votes, Kc-tauver slipped to 275 V^ and Russell had 261. Sievenson was the winner. Despite this strong' showing In 1952, Keiauver today remains a secondary figure in speculation over tiie probable winner oi the Democratic nomination next year. Tim spndi^hi is on Stevenson and Harriman — wiih Harriman now getting; strong promotion. The recent trend of events sug- gcsts that Democratic strategists j \ are building- toward a situation! i which could have this result: Stevenson is unable to swing the convention to his side—then Harriman would be ready to move to the center of the stage. May Have Own Ideas Kefauver may have his own.ideas about tlie.se proceedings. For several weeks he has been overseas visiting foreign lands. Thus he has been in no position to project himself into the presidential picture even if he so desired. If the Tennessean does make another bid for his party's nomination, he will add considerable interest to the campaign. But despite his personal popularity with the voters, he faces a tremendous handicap in this well-known fact: he isn't popular with most of the Democratic party bigwigs, including ihe powerful bloc of Southerners whose wishes must be taken into account in convention maneuvers. In the 10 years he was in the HOLLAND NEWS B; Mn. Ed Hampton. Jr House and during his seven year-; Ii. the Senate, he never identified himself with the Southern lawmakers. Frequently he found himself lined up against his more conservative collegues in legislative debates. He didn't sit in the inner councils of the Southerners even though he was from a Southern state. And thus he was more or less isolated from many of the men who could help him most in a convention. he could count on the support of his Southern colleagues and add Ihis to his strength in other parts of the country, he could become a formidable factor in the Democratic convention. But he doesn't have that support —and that's one big reason he isn't j named along with Stevenson and] Harriman at the top of the list of Democratic strong men at this point.
